2010 was a good draft: Pouncey, Worilds, Brown (also Dwyer and Sanders)
2011 was a good draft: Heyward, Allen, Gilbert2012 was a good draft: DeCastro, Adams, Beachum (possibly Spence)
The class of 2013 needs to step it up this year (Jones, Bell, Wheaton, Thomas...even both Williams and and Justin Brown will have an opportunity)...
But, '08 and '09 were killers...
2011 is ok with Heyward but Gilbert has been a disaster. They had to move Adams over to TE to help him at RT. Allen is still learning. Adams absolutely blows at LT and Spence hasn't played a single down.
You need to find studs somewhere. The draft hasn't garnered any lately with the exception of Heyward and Brown. Players like Adams and Gilbert hurt your drafting because they are high picks that can't seem to put it together. Hell it takes both of them to just play RT.
Hopefully this year we can get more players that can actually play above average.
Brett deserves a song featuring multiple keyboards, two finger pianiast,sythesizer filled, white dudes lookin like Gherri Curls, classic MTV 80s.
Funny thing is that when we come crawling back begging him to sign after "courting" other DEs, the lyrics would be shockingly on point.
Brett should make Colbert and Tomlin sing him this song, put on an 80s "Toto" wigs and post it on youtube as a condition of signing.

There should be some kind of rule that makes all Steeler-related threads carry at least 1 Toto film clip, just to restore a bit of sanity to the argument.
That, or we must all quote Steven Seagal at every given opportunity.
But then again, don't ask me...I'm just a cook..

Doesn't sound to me as though the Steelers were ever very serious about him.
